The Manzanar Fishing Club is a feature-length documentary that chronicles the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans from a unique perspective: through the eyes of those who defied the armed guards, barbed wire and searchlights to fish for trout in the surrounding waters of the Eastern Sierra.

This untold story offers a unique perspective on freedom, where internees found relief from the daily grind of unjust incarceration by matching wits with the trout in the surrounding waters of the famed Eastern Sierra.

Q&A to follow with filmmakers.
